As from the ancient simple diet we have come along the way of eating an unhealthy type of fats and complex carbohydrates which acts as a load on our internal organs. This also starts attacking our posture where the spine plays a big role, not only does our spinal cord is what gets affected but also our vertebral columns. Padmasana (yoga asana) was always recommended primitively for the simple reason that not only aided us in digesting but keeping our spine healthy.

Four things which help in always achieving the ideal health is, eat, exercise, meditate and sleep. With keeping in these four things we can make sure that our body is working in harmony.

Eat:

A good source of calcium is green leafy vegetables and seeds this will not only help in treating the sciatica pain but also will help in giving nutrients to our vertebral column. The seed also has a good amount of minerals which helps in the spine to develop and spinal roots to become stronger, hence the nerve does not create the pain.

Having a good amount of green vegetable juice makes sure that their nutritive state improves. Vegetable juice is a sure example of getting nutrition completely absorbed.

Exercise:

In sciatica, we have to be regular with exercise in order to treat the muscle strength, so here is some exercise which you can start with for sciatica.

1. Sleep on your back, and make sure you raise one leg at a time at 90 degrees, this should be done alternately.

2. Followed by this is stand with your feet together, raise your knee near your trunk by flexing it, alternately, one breath at a time.

3. A good warm-up is important to reduce any risk before exercise, the next thing is to start with a brisk walk of 30 minutes daily. For making leg muscle stronger.

Meditation:

A healthy mind leads to a healthy body, it is time to make sure you give 15 minutes daily to calm all your nerves and reflect on the day. De-stress yourself with music therapy, which will help in releasing the pain and discomfort.

Sleep:

Sleep always remain the most important part, a good sleep cycle is considered to be of 90 minutes, which should be 5 times a day. That makes a good 7-8 hours of sleep is needed in order to rejuvenate our cells and function daily harmoniously.

Massage is another thing which you can do in order to release pain, massage your leg with coconut or almond oil, this will improve your blood circulation in the affected area.

Hopefully, these suggestions will help you.

Thank you

हेलो,

कारण - साइटिक तंत्रिका आपकी रीढ़ की हड्डी से शुरू होती है, आपके कूल्हों और नितंबों के माध्यम से चलती हुई दोनों पैर में नीचे की तरफ शाखाएं जाती हैं। यह तंत्रिका आपके शरीर की सबसे लंबी तंत्रिका है और सबसे महत्वपूर्ण तंत्रिकाओं में से एक है। इसका आपके पैरों को नियंत्रित करने और महसूस करने की आपकी क्षमता पर सीधा प्रभाव पड़ता है। इस तंत्रिका में परेशानी उत्पन्न होती है। इस बीमारी का मूल कारण पुराने समय का क़ब्ज़ और शरीर में गैस की अधिकता है। मैंने ऐसे में देखा है की आहार शुद्धि और प्राकृतिक जीवन शैली को अपना कर पुर्ण स्वास्थ को पा सके।

समाधान - गहरे हरे रंग के पत्तों (पालक, मेथी, बथुआ, धनिया, मूली के पत्तों) का जूस से फ़ायदा होगा दिन में तीन बार लें।

मेरुदंड स्नान के लिए अगर टब ना हो तो एक मोटा तौलिया गीला कर लें बिना निचोरे उसको बिछा लें और अपने मेरुदंड को उस स्थान पर रखें।

लंबा गहरा स्वाँस अंदर भरें और रुकें। इसके बाद फिर पूरे तरीक़े से स्वाँस को ख़ाली करें, रुकें, फिर स्वाँस अंदर भरें। ये एक चक्र हुआ। ऐसे 10 चक्र एक समय पर करना है। ये दिन में चार बार करें। 

जीवन शैली-  1आकाश तत्व - एक खाने से दुसरे खाने के बीच में अंतराल (gap) रखें।

Dear health seeker,

I will not go into the nitty-gritty of the disease symptoms, Sciatica, for us there is no disease only lower level of health,a diminished vitality, correction of your old unhygienic lifestyle is the cure from your affliction of Sciatica. It's quite a crippling and painful situation to be in but nonetheless, you have come to the right place for not only a complete cure but a very healthy lifestyle for rest of your life. 
Out of many cases treated successfully, herewith a case is forwarded for you to follow suit:-
 "She had inflammation somewhere in the middle of the body which caused severe pain and made her immobile to some extent.
1. She was given sunbath for 30 minutes with head under the shade or a wet towel to save the head from heat followed by either cold shower on her back the seat of the spine. She really enjoyed this immensely .or a spinal bath for 25 minutes for the first week and to extend the time up to 45 minutes. 
2. She took a shallow hip bath twice a day 
3. She was given ash gourd juice 100ml 
4. Diet consisted of vegetables raw and cooked  conservatively without oil spices and condiments and salads and coconuts 
There was some easy curative crisis in the form of cold, sneezing, diarrhoea by which drug-poisons were eliminated. The lady became alright in a few months. Since in olden days the patients were very cooperative and will not indulge in any diet other than the prescribed ones and as such will recover easily and early. Please keep this in your psyche and do not indulge in any enervating foods and devitalising foodless foods.

Sciatica is a lower back, buttocks and leg pain syndrome most commonly blamed on spinal causation in the lumbosacral area of the backbone. When it's not entirely spine, it can be pseudo-sciatica. Sometimes varicose and sciatica can often co-exist without being diagnosed properly. Unlike varicose, sciatica can be quite disabling in terms of pains. They cause muscle spasms which can make one's life miserable when it happens.

Over a period of time, with predominantly acid-forming diets, adults face weakness in their adrenal glands which affect the lower anatomy of the body and one of that is sciatica. Diet and hormone imbalance from endocrine glandular weakness can lead to inflammation which is the response of the body to protect itself from acids. Natural steroids from adrenals usually counter-balance the inflammation. But when this balance is destroyed, tissue and cellular death can occur leading to various named ailments including sciatica. Many issues can cause an inflammation of the sciatic nerve - your sluggish liver, acidic ph leaching the lumbar discs, unclean GUT, intestines with rotting food deposits inflaming nerves also leading to the legs. Calcium deposits across the body. Some viruses which are long term in the organs, which have come to eat the decomposing toxins in the body would have made the body their home for years growing stronger with fine while the body weakens with the wrong lifestyle. Their neurotoxins are like acids and the release on any nerve can cause inflammation. Similar nervous issues can cause varicose veins, herpes, facial paralysis, strokes, TGN etc. just that the names are different as per the symptoms studied by the medical community in different places in the body. On the lower end of the spine, viral activity swells up the nerves in the lumbar spine, forcing the discs to move and causing the nerves to get squeezed too.

All the issues are because of acidity rising in the body while the body needs an alkaline balance to function.

When the body has been fed with fats for all the three meals of the day, the blood eventually becomes toxic and viscous. The heart has to really work harder to pump that soup/jelly into the veins and arteries and suffers to pull it from lower extremities. That’s why people have it more in the legs and not in their hands. Typically such blood is usually dehydrated. Water component ( not H2O) tends to expand and make space when blood flows. But due to the high amount of fat, lack of oxygen the toxins fill up the spaces.

If high acidic foods ( not coming under category of fruits veg veggies greens majorly) are ingested, their ph is less than normal, the stomach does not need to make it acidic to process. The pancreas won’t produce the alkaline buffers to the blood to neutralise the acidity raised by the stomach. So this acidic food in its state reaches the next few levels like the duodenum which are not geared for this ph level and bile from the liver and gallbladder is called to rescue this balance. As this bile continues to be overproduced, the liver becomes tired. If liver and gallbladder are not in a good working condition, enough Bile is not made available in the duodenum, and this is how acidic food reaches the intestines. As liver weakens, the body cleaning is also compromised and blood continues to carry acidic toxins that have the liver could not manage and have reached the intestines where nutrients get absorbed. I went to acidity in the blood goes up, the blood first uses of the alkaline buffers present in its blood plasma to bring the blood closer to an alkaline pH. Unfortunately because of continuous supply of acidic foods to the body, the level of alkaline buffers is often very low. If the blood pH value falls below this range, then all the bodily fluids such as urine, lymphatic fluid, semen, Cerebrospinal fluids, saliva everything starts becoming acidic. This disrupts all the cellular function in the body and disturbs the balance. To prevent such a state of decline, the blood starts reducing its acidity by neutralising it with one of the most alkaline substance in the body that is calcium from the bones. So blood starts dissolving the calcium from the bones in its self to reach an ideal pH level. This is also called leaching of calcium. Blood is a supplier and also a retriever. It will choose parts of the bone where it can leach very quickly such as the ends of the bones. As it continues to do so, that part of the joint weakens and produces pain and inflammation. There will also be severe obstruction of blood flow, the viscosity of blood will be thicker. All these factors lead to the accumulation of toxins across the body.
